The Palio

Shot in a very timeless style, this project focuses on heritage and tradition. Palio di Siena, with roots that date back to the 13th century, is one of the longest running horse races in the world. This behind the scenes access documents the jockeys, the fans and an event steeped in hundreds of years of Italian history. It is full of drama and emotion - and the work feels somehow heroic as well as culturally significant.
